Free sample

Komplexe Geometrien, energetische Hochleistung und zukunftsoffene Nutzoptionen stellen bei knappen Budgets immer höhere technische Ansprüche an Detail und Ausführung moderner Bauten. Modern Construction Case Studies präsentiert erfolgreich umgesetzte oder noch in Planung und Bau befindliche, innovative Avant-Garde Projekte der Gegenwart – alle von international anerkannten Architekturbüros entworfen. Die Fallbeispiele werden in systematischer Form, geordnet nach technischen Gesichtspunkten, in Text, Fotos, 3D-Darstellungen und Diagrammen analysiert. Sie stammen von Zaha Hadid, BIG, Jean Nouvel, Gensler, Lab Architecture Studio, RMJM Architecture, Nordic Office of Architecture u.a.
Das Buch eröffnet neue Wege, die auch zur Anwendung für Projekte mit kleinerem Maßstab dienen können.
